Publisher's Summary

In Chicago, a secret L train runs through the mythical East Side of the city. On that train, you'll find a house-cat conductor, an alcoholic elf, a queen of the last city farm, the most curious wind, and an exceptional girl by the name of Francesca Finnegan.
When we first encounter Richard K. Lyons, he is a man who has long forgotten the one night, when he was still a boy called Rich, when Francesca invited him aboard the secret L for an adventure though the East Side. The night was a mad epic, complete with gravity-defying first kisses, mermaid overdoses, and princess rescues. Unfortunately for Rich, the night ended like one of those elusive dreams forgotten the moment you wake. Now, Rich is all grown up and out of childish adventures, an adult whose life is on the verge of ruin. It will take the rediscovery of his exploits with Francesca, and a re-acquaintance with the boy he once was, to save him.

A Fun Fairy-tale Roller coaster of a story.

Where does The Fairytale Chicago of Francesca Finnegan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed listening to this audio book. I really loved the narrated and how well he did the voices. It was so perfect.

What did you like best about this story?

I really loved how the story flowed and how how it turned out. I loved the dream and the feeling he had met her before. The whole store was great.

Have you listened to any of Sean Lenhart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listen to any of Sean Lenhart's performances before but would love to listen to his voice again.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to this story in a day. Probably in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

This was a fun and fantastic, mythical, adult adventure. I have never read a story like this and loved that it was an audio book and the fact I was listening to a story but an adult fairy tale story.
